…The entire performance from the early show can be found in excellent quality on the CD boot "Live At Max's Kansas City" (Swingin' Pig). This CD also has the two tracks from the second show but, inexplicably, the recording of "Song For Orphans" is only half complete on this boot. The complete recording of "Song For Orphans" from this show can be either found on the CDs "The Unsurpassed Springsteen Vol 1" or "The Unsurpassed Springsteen Vol 2". Mike Appel also utilized these recordings of “Bishop Danced” and “Thundercrack” for copyright/publishing purposes. In doing so the long, 11:30 recording of "Thundercrack" was professionally edited to a slicker, more focused 6:50 running time. The song is cut in a couple of places, with the major edit completely eliminating the middle 'comedy break' routine. It is this edited version that was distributed (on tape or acetate) to select industry people during the period. This edited version of "Thundercrack" was one of the earliest booted Springsteen recordings and can be found on the mid-70s LP boot "Fire On The Fingertips". Enhanced sound specimens of this long-circulating edited version of "Thundercrack" can be found in more recent times on CD boots "Forgotten Songs", "Unsurpassed Springsteen Vol 2" and "Deep Down In The Vaults" (which falsely credits the performance as January 5, 1974 at Joe's Place). The 2008 CD "Max's Kansas City Night" (Crystal Cat) has all the above-mentioned songs plus "Rosalita". One final point of interest, a 1972 studio demo of "Vibes Man" with audience applause crudely dubbed onto it by a 1970s bootlegger often circulates identified as from this show. There is no genuine live performance of "Vibes Man" known. (…)
